today and tell a story about a family in wyoming. and i don't know the specifics of the family there but let's jut talk about in a state like wyoming, which is on the federal exchange, the real story of the options that are out there for families out there, i think my friend from wyoming was talking about a family of five. again, i can't know all the specifics of that family, but let's just say that family of five in carbon county, wyoming, was making $100,000 a year, which would be about twice the average salary in that state and across the country. well, that family of five making $100,000 a year would qualify for a $677-per-month tax credit, a bronze plan would be about $550 to $750 per month. that's about 40% cheaper than a lot of private plans that may be available today. let's say that family is actually making the median income in wyoming, which is around $56,000. if you're making $56,000 and you're a family of five in wyoming, all your kids will qualify for medicaid, which is virtually free. and the parents would qualify for a tax credit of $528 per month. and a bronze

of legislation that i'm -- that my friend from wyoming and so many others were involved in developing what this legislation does is lay down clear sanctions, first beginning today -- or after passage beginning with sanctions sanctions that hit several important entities in the banking sector and the energy sector so that we actually do something that affects the russian economy until such a time as they pull those troopsway from the border and they remove -- those troops away from the body and they remove the black ops from inside the country that are fomenting the problems. in the event that russia does actually cross the border with those troops, this bill imposes much deeper sanctions on russia and significant ifand signifies to them what price they would pay. earlier this week when the administration put forth its sanctions, it was a marvel to see that the stock market in russia several days in a row continued to go up, had no effect on russia -- none. mr. president, editorial writers and people on beige sides of the aisle -- on both sides of the aisle understand this was nothing, noth

. the rock formation on top of the oil reserve is what gave both the site in wyoming and the scandal its name. it's called the teapot dome. sadly, in 1962, a big windstorm blew the spout off the teapot, off what had been the teapot. doesn't look like a teapot dome anymore, looks like a little castle or lump or something. but after the scandal happened in the 1920s, this huge scandal, the navy, not surprisingly, decided that when they transferred their rights to that oil field into this den of thieves, right, when they gave it to the interior department and then it turned into this huge bribery-laden scandal, the navy decided that had actually been a fraudulent transaction. after the whole scandal blew open, the navy took back the teapot oil field in wyoming. they said, never mind, warren g. harding, never mind, interior department, never mind, oil companies, we're taking this back. it's ours once again. and they have held on to it ever since. ever since this terrible scandal. over the years, all the other oil fields, all the other naval petroleum reserves that we got back in the 1900s or 19-t
the most harrowing of our experiences as a fight between denver and cheyenne, wyoming. it was april. and we had a blizzard. and we had a four seater with five people on it. so one person had to sit on the john. so the only thing, and i'm sure we understand, we needed two pilots. so what we thought were clouds were snow-covered mountain paths. and we were in trouble when bill clinton called hillary could tell her how much he loved her. [laughter] but luckily we made it. and some of these things are very important. because wyoming had an early caucus. and in that caucus mikesell is the governor, kathy karpen was secretary of date, which in wyoming is the equivalent of lieutenant governor. and that caucus was held in her basement. it was clinton's first major win in the 1992 election. so they probably thought that the flight was worth it. so at cleveland we laid out our agenda and we were not very popular with democratic interest groups. the host senator actually created a whole different group called the coalition for democratic values to oppose this. we woke up having jesse jackson protested
